Nicky is a visual artist working in illustration, print and oils; often starting work with traditional methods before translating them into digital means ready for modern print re-production. Humour, the bizarre and satire are threaded through her illustrations, elements that help contribute to the wacky visuals for Mancunian record label, Sour Grapes, since 2020. 
While intrigued by the peculiarity of life, Nicky also enjoys exploring the emotional spectrum people face and uses this as a way to ground her practice; particularly through reflections made in her printmaking and her expressive marks in her oil works.
